When doctors at a hospital in Chile were presented last weekend with an 18-month-old whose head was stuck in a kettle they quickly realized they were ill-equipped for such delicate surgery. So, like everyone else, when doctors need help, they call the fire department. The video above shows the results.

Early video from Mike Villanova (homer218) of a fire yesterday (Monday) in Teterboro, New Jersey.

Todd South & Jim Norman, NorthJersey.com:

A tractor-trailer truck raising its bed to pour hot asphalt for a repaving job on Huyler Street on Monday snagged power lines overhead and pulled down a utility pole, sparking a smoky blaze that knocked out power to Main Street in neighboring Little Ferry and snarled traffic throughout the area, authorities said. 

NJ Hasbrouk Heights garbage truck fire 2 9-22-14

The blaze engulfed the truck and sent up a plume of thick smoke that could be seen miles away. The heat could be felt a half-block away as firefighters from Hasbrouck Heights, and borough police and officers from Moonachie and the Bergen County Police Department, and emergency workers from the borough and Little Ferry arrived at the fire scene. The Port Authority’s special chemical foam pump truck was dispatched as well.

From a fire Saturday in Old Montreal.

When the cars didn’t move quickly enough, the truck simply rear-ended the last cruiser in line, pushing the row of cars up the street.

The truck then backed up and bolted through the opening, crushing the side of the German luxury car and shearing off the front bumper.

Fire truck pushes cops out of the way 1

Fire official Denis Doucet used words such as “unique” and “exceptional” to describe the fire truck’s manoeuvre.

“There were exceptional circumstances: a major fire in a seven-story building, the narrow streets of Old Montreal…with large vehicles,” he said. “It becomes difficult to manoeuvre.”

The City of Montreal will compensate the owner of the BMW.

The ladder goes up. The person gets out the window and onto the ladder,but starts to slide off the side of it as a firefighter nears.  Unfortunately it doesn’t end well.

This is another one of those undated videos that just popped up on LiveLeak. No indication when it occurred. It does say this happened in Russia. Thanks to Brendan for passing it along.

This is a pretty amazing video from Thursday’s fire at the Towers Hotel in Dauphin (Manitoba, Canada). Just before the final portion of the structure collapses a cat can be seen perched on a window sill. Somehow the cat survived the fire and the master streams and now the cat rides down the collapse and walks away.

Thanks to Frank Billington IV for sending this one to STATter911.com.
